Rosie Day has opened Rosie’s Gifts in the old video shop premises opposite Clacy’s garage on London Street. Rosie is a long-term Whitchurch resident who up until recently had been an office worker. The gift shop is Rosie’s first foray into retail and has proved a steep learning curve, however Rosie enjoys meeting people and the challenge of doing something new.

Among the items for sale are Wight Lavender products, manufactured on the Isle of Wight. Rosie is the only ‘mainland’ stockist, having visited the farm, liked the products and secured a distribution agreement.

Wight lavender products are special in being Lanolin-free for people who have a Lanolin allergy, ask Rosie for advice on this.

With the onset of frosty days winter is not far, and Rosie has a stock of colourful plastic sledges for when the snow finally arrives. Don’t miss out and end up on the bin liner or tea-tray!

Apart from lavender products and sledges Rosie stocks items such as:

* Preserves – Chutneys, Jams, Honey, Mustards, etc

* Natural stone tea-lite holders and scented candles

* Fashion Jewellery and accessories

* A mixture of glass and ceramics

* Toys and much much more.
